Arne Morris Sorenson (born 1959) is an American hotel executive. He is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Marriott International. A graduate of Luther College and the University of Minnesota Law School, Sorenson became the head of the largest publicly traded hotel chain in the world on March 31, 2012. He previously practiced law in Washington, D.C. with Latham and Watkins (specializing in mergers and acquisitions litigation), has been a director for Wal-Mart, and has served as the Chief Operating Officer for Marriott.
Born in Tokyo, Japan, Sorenson is married, and has four children.
He has led his company into advocating for LGBT rights. In 2016, he announced that he formally opposed Indiana's proposed Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and became one of many CEOs to ask for a full repeal of North Carolina's House Bill 2.
In November 2016, Sorensen wrote an open letter to President-elect Donald Trump, encouraging him to take a collaborative approach to governing; to not pursue retribution against election rival Hillary Clinton; to "to minimize divisiveness around these areas [of LGBT rights] by letting people live their lives and by ensuring that they are treated equally in the public square;" to initiate a major infrastructure program, without "connecting it to the repatriation of foreign earnings or by tying it to some philosophy of privatization of historically government functions;" to "make sure our borders are secured as well as our airports" without "clos[ing] America to travelers from around the world" by "roll[ing] out a global trusted traveler program to ensure that we focus our security resources on those who pose risk, not on the overwhelming majority who pose no risk;" "to adopt a transparent approach for future immigration" including steps "to ensure that these 11 million people [the illegal immigrant population of the United States] can help make America stronger by paying taxes, investing in the future and continuing to contribute to our communities;" "to attract and retain the best, brightest, most talented, hardest working people — wherever they come from;" and to enact "a dramatic simplification of our tax code that closes loopholes and unnecessary tax preferences, lowers tax rates to levels comparable to the rest of the industrialized world and removes market distortions as much as possible" enabling a move to "a territorial [tax] system — without losing revenues or increasing our budget deficit."
Sorenson has spoken out against President Trump's Executive Order 13769 and its successors (the so-called "Muslim Ban) as potentially harmful to the U.S. tourism industry. He has also urged President Trump to improve relations with Cuba, including harnessing tourism as a strategic tool for this purpose.
